The video game industry is only going to grow in terms of value and size, but what about the worth of the games themselves? This is the pre-manufacturing of nostalgia. The nostalgic and intrinsic value of rare video games as digital assets would be foolish to ignore because most industries produce historic artifacts that gain value with time and the gaming industry is no exception, with several video games iconic of the trade already becoming worth several thousands.
Capitalizing on the past is EVORETRO’s plans for the future. Over the last few years the popularity of old school video games across various retro console platforms like the NES, SNES, N64 and even Sega Genesis, has grown significantly, with some rare titles selling for hundreds of dollars and sometimes even thousands of dollars. Nintendo ended 2017 in style as it posted record-breaking revenues of $9.2 billion for the year, growing 172% annually.
